What was meant to be a quick lunch at Thames Court, Shepperton, Surrey turned into a two hour lunch. All because it was so relaxing and in beautiful surroundings.
They had an extensive menu which I would challenge anyone to say they could not find something they fancied.
I went for a sandwich. Not just any sandwich but a fish finger one. Or as they say on their menu, Cod fish finger beer-battered cod goujons and samphire tartare sauce. I changed the straw fries for the sweet potato fries as they are a favourite of mine. It was all yummy. The batter was light and crispy with the fish being flaky and moist. A good combination! The roll was light and fresh with the filling of a tomato and lettuce with the tartare sauce. The sweet potatoes were soft on the inside and crisp on the outside.
I fancied a ginger beer and I was given a Hawkes ginger beer. I have never drank that before and I was pleasantly surprised. With a large glass of ice I tasted the fruit aromas and the root ginger heat.
Overall a fabulous lunch in a great picturesque pub over looking the Thames. I loved the Pimms wheelbarrows outside and can’t wait to visit again.
Have you ever visited Thames Court? What did you have? a fancy beer or food?
